Translations for Black Lives Matter


Black Lives Matter History

In 2013, three radical Black organizers — Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi — created a Black-centered political will and movement building project called #BlackLivesMatter. It was in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman. Since then the movement has been used to shine light onto the african american community about the injustices they face. Black Lives Matter is an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. It is an affirmation of Black folks’ humanity, our contributions to this society, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression.

Our Mission

In light of the current events, we want to create a platform where Asian American young adults can view resources about the Black Lives Matter movement. This movement is oftentimes stigmatized in the Asian American community so it’s important to share information to the older generations. We offer translated documents to share with your family members to spread awareness to build a more supportive community.
